Here we are back in Camp Driveway at my daughter Terri's house. Since we will be in the area until after the 1st of the year, Leonard needed a project. What better project than to build a playhouse for the granddaughters.
On Tuesday we went to Home Depot and got an estimate of the cost to build vs. buying a ready-made building and customizing it. WHEW! Not cheap either way but we decided to go from scratch.
On Wednesday morning he returned to Home Deport and came back with enough material to keep him busy (hopefully) through the weekend.
Framing the floor with help from son-in-law Steve.
The inside playhouse will be 6'x8' with a 4' porch. The inside of the playhouse floor is down, not the porch floor yet. Here he is working on a wall frame.
Two walls in place with the framing ready for sliding Plexiglas windows.
The walls will be 7' with an 8' center. This thing is HUGE. He wanted it to be 8'x12' but I convinced him to tone it down a bit to 6"x12".
We will use my brothers car carrier to transport it the 90 miles to my daughter, Amy's, house in Maryland.
On a side note: A few years before we went fulltime and sold our house to Terri, Len built his dream of a shop. That (and the horses we sold) are the only things he really misses from our stix n brix life. Glad he can always come back here and enjoy the shop whenever he wants.
